Great spot for looking at the Canyon. If it has rained recently there are a few waterfalls too. If your lucky there will be a Hawaiian Warrior talking about Hawaiian culture at the top of the lookout.

Not a hike at all, but great views!!

It’s a long, winding path to get up to the lookout but has rewarding, breathtaking views. Bring a jacket though if you’re up there near sunset. With higher elevation it gets chilly and windy.

This is a quick stop offering a spectacular view of the Canyon and its contrasts. Its a short but steep walk up the paved trail. Great for selfies =)

It’s not an hike, but the view is amazing!

Beautiful waterfall cascading out if canyon!

Stunning. Not really a trail though, just a short path to a beautiful view.

I'm not sure what the other reviews are about, but this "hike" is really a walk on the beach. Admittedly, it is a beautiful, desolate beach, but there is no waterfall and no "elevation". Park at the MacArthur park, at the lifeguard station, and walk to the right, on the beach. The walk ends at Barking Sands military base, about 2 miles out. You pass by the raceway. You'll see very few, if any, people. Bring water and a bathing suit.

More of a path than a trail which leads you to the lookout. Incredible views on the drive up and you won’t be tired of them yet by the time you get to the lookout.

Definitely worth seeing!


Awesome views at the lookout!

Worth the drive, not a hike. Small walk to lookout spot. Limited parking, go early or be lucky.

Not really a hike but the views are worth it. Go super early because the hwy gets insanely congested around 10 or 11 and stays that way until dusk.

Amazing view, not really a hike. Go early b/c the parking lot is small.

Beautiful site!

What a site....I can see why this is called the canyon of the Pacific. I must see when visiting the garden island, wow! Absolutely wonderous views! Went around 6pm and weather was perfect. A must see and worth the drive.

Astonishing, majestic views of the Canyon. Waimea Canyon was definitely the most interesting and beautiful part of Kauai. We spotted some mountain goats during the hike. Make sure your footage is secure if you decide to explore beyond the main trail, as it can be very steep. Quite a few helicopters hovering around.

It was a decent view, but this was not a hike. You park the car in the lot and walk about 200' away. It is handicap accessible so that's a great option for people who aren't able to traverse other trails.

Trail was a bit muddy so use proper footwear. Lots of great vistas. Heavy traffic from tourists.

Lovely! Great place to see the sunrise.
Passes thru the golf course.
Do it! We did three days in a row. Discovered something new every time.
